Flightbeam's KSFO HD(v2) coming soon!

Recommended Posts

Looks like it could be 1-2 weeks away.

 

Read this

"I've done some pretty technical optimizations to this to take much more advantage of your GPU, so if you're running P3D in particular with a nice graphics card, you will get the best performance scenario."

 

Its looks breath taking. IMO I think there the best out there for large airports. This looks like another level up again!.

Good news but I'm naturally critical over the potential VAS usage that comes with such high quality mega airports...

I never have any VAS problems with KIAD KDEN KPHX, I hear what your saying and KSFO is in a huge pop area but am sure like there older version it will shine. With there older version FSDT KLAX to KSFO was no problem at all.


Good news and long awaited addon, but I can't open your links.

What links?

It is a reasonable worry of course.

However Mir, the FB developer, says KSFO v2 will have even better memory management than the now legacy version, which never gave me any memory headaches.

My suspicion is that it's the surrounding area that's a bigger problem. 

 

Still, I will say that I won't be carrying couatl over into P3D.  It was pretty unpleasant when it broke in FSX a couple of months ago and I had to work to get it working again.  Tough decision but that's what I've decided.

For some reason they decided to work now haha ... Wow! What a beauty. I can already imagine myself approaching sfo with a fully loaded 747v2 .. It'd be amazing  :( haha

I am aware that FlightBeam products has vastly better VAS management than other producers, but as previously mentioned, the surrounding area will also influence memory usage. Anyway, no need to be concerned before the product is even released :wink:

FB is some if the best scenery on VAS - it's the orbs scenery that's a killer.

How do you get the flightbeam airports to blend with Orbx? I downloaded Kden trial and it looked horrible as far as fitting in with Ftx Global.

Would be interesting for someone to do a FPS comparison between stock KSFO and this version after it is installed.

Just Done first flight.

SWA v with PMDG 700 NG and FS2Crew Rebooted

ASN

Cloudy down KLAX way

KSNA addon airport to KSFO HD.

 

FPS stayed locked at 30 fps.

 

After parking did a walk round then a reply of landing No Dings no OOM.

 

Its breath taking and performs perfectly. Well one small thing, the large building on the right landing on 28L had a bit of flicker but thats it.

Noticed that too. There are some objects that have some z-fighting in or among them. There's also some autogen exclusion around the airport and I don't get why this mostly happens at FB/FSDT airports. They say it's an FSX/P3D bug--which I'm sure is right--but other developers have seemed to manage it better. Not sure if it's simply a matter of handplacing some autogen or what...

 

To improve VAS and performance, I downsized a lot of the texture sheets and also removed the grass models and replaced them with dummy files (changing the file extension or simply deleting them causes COUATL to freak out). Neither did much considering I use ORBX NCA (I just love it too much) but FB had made these facts known for a while.

 

I think I just like NCA and its addon airports too much to be able to go the SFO route. I just recently discovered that after some system tweaking that I can get FSDT KLAX to run well so I just bought that instead. KLAX has the luxury, of course, of not sitting on top of an ORBX region (not until SoCal comes out but I may pass on that one - Landclass NA should suffice).
